Synopsis: Cannot configure Apache to log successfull login authorization.

Every time a user gets a restricted document, they "log in".
It is completely in the browser; Apache requires the
authentication for every request.  If it doesn't get it,
it sends a 401 and the browser prompts the user.

However, even if the user has "logged in" the browser can decide
not to send it in a particular situation, or it can decide
to send it just because it thinks it should.

So there is no concept of "logging in" for Apache to
know about since it is entirely a client side operation.
